Repos and Subscriptions needed to install RHEV 3.5

After some fighting, here’s what you have to to ..

Install a RHEL 6 VM

# subscription-manager register
Registering to: subscription.rhn.redhat.com:443/subscription
Username: your new shiny name
The system has been registered with ID: XXXXXXXX

# subscription-manager attach
Installed Product Current Status:
Product Name: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server
Status: Subscribed

(Does the above look familiar?)


Once that’s done, go to your RHN account & click on the VM you just ‘attached’ and pick ‘Attach a subscription’ and select your Virtualization Entitlement.

Once that’s done, issue:

subscription-manager repos –enable rhel-6-server-rhevm-3.5-rpms ; sleep 1 ; subscription-manager repos –enable jb-eap-5-for-rhel-6-server-rpms ; sleep 1 ; subscription-manager repos –enable rhel-6-server-supplementary-rpms  ; sleep 1 ; subscription-manager repos –enable jb-eap-6-for-rhel-6-server-rpms; sleep 1 ; subscription-manager repos –enable rhel-6-server-rhevh-rpms

THEN, you can install RHEV & the hypervisor (to get the ISOs):

yum -y install rhevm “rhev-hypervisor*”
